Unfortunately it turns out that the first Horrible Recipe of the Week was not the last. It was posted on a Saturday, which is not very good for an X of the Week; X of the Week postings should be on Sundays or Mondays, obviously. What'smoreover, some callous reprobate went and asked me to repost the recipe with measures adjusted for his actual ingredients on hand. Since that is topologically impossible, an entirely new recipe is required to accommodate this amoral recidivist's sadistic whims. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he were a serial killer or maybe even a geneticist.

Thus we must endure another terrible, terrible recipe.

OK, I'm no cultural authority on precisely what constitutes jumping a shark, but I just watched a Mythbusters episode where they rigged a machine to drop eggs into boiling water in a random sequence (with randomized time delays so the eggs couldn't anticipate when the next one would drop) and hooked a houseplant up to a polygraph to detect emotional disturbances in the plant as it mourned in sympathy for the eggs.

It was very scientific, as they made sure to put the plant on foam to reduce vibration and inside a shipping container for electromagnetic shielding, and the human crew left the area to let the plant focus on the feelings of the eggs.

(Actually it wasn't really very scientific. They didn't even specify whether the eggs came from free-range chickens or if the plant and the eggs had been given the opportunity to interact in social situations in order to strengthen the emotional connection. Seriously, you expect a plant to give a flying crīsāre about a dozen eggs straight from the supermarket shelf without even a passing "How do you do?"?)
